Ticonderoga Activity: USS Kelly 25th Anniversary Party

As many of you know, the USS Kelly was the mothership that launched the chapter-in-training that eventually became the USS Ticonderoga.  September 2011 is the 25th Anniversary of the USS Kelly as a Star Trek fan club.  The USS Kelly has been promoting Star Trek and the values that we try to live up to since 1986.  And they have been doing this without charging any dues during the club’s entire run.  They have no plans to charge dues in the future as well.

The USS Ticonderoga crew wanted to celebrate with our Star Trek family by making the 25th Anniversary party the official monthly activity.  Here is the invitation from the USS Kelly.

Get Ready to come in your Birthday suit

No, not that one, you silly-dilly. Starfleet regulations for modesty still apply. The grand lady known as the USS Kelly has had a birthday, and it’s a big one. Unlike some women who are shy about revealing the number, she’s proud of her age and has earned every one of her years. As of September 1st, the USS Kelly turned 25. That’s right, 25 years. A quarter of a century. Two and a half decades. The big 2-5…

This, my friends, most definitely calls for a party.
